SBS 2008 – Exchange services fail to start on reboot.

Filed under: SBS, SBS 2008 — solutionsthroughit @ 17:05

Had this issue on a few SBS servers now, and have found a great KB article that resolves the issue correctly.  The problem is that some Exchange services attempt to start before AD has properly started. 

The official cause is “This problem occurs because the domain controller and other Exchange-Server-dependent services do not start completely when Exchange Server 2007 or Exchange Server 2010 try to start.

The Microsoft “Fix it for me” service works perfectly for this issue, if it’s the actual problem.
